Harassment Intimidation and Bullying (HIB)

New Jersey has been a leader in the establishment of a strong statutory, regulatory, policy and program framework to support the prevention, remediation and reporting of HIB in schools.  The link below provides information and resources to aid schools in the establishment of HIB policies, the adoption of HIB program strategies, the implementation of proactive responses to HIB and the adoption of effective HIB reporting procedures.

Each school, through its School Safety Team, is required to evaluate its implementation of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, by using the "School Self-Assessment for Determining Grades under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights." This Self-Assessment tool includes eight core elements that address all of the eight core requirements for schools.  School Safety Teams must assign a rating for each indicator based on the criteria and available documentation. Wahlstrom Academy received a score of 76. The East Orange School District received an average score of 74.

While completing the Self-Assessment, we learned that our school has demonstrated strengths in integrating HIB prevention themes into our instructional program.  This has resulted in the creation of favorable school-wide conditions.
